My boots may have a tarnished past, but they’re ready for a new life playing matchy-matchy with the new gown! I’m leaving for No. 11, so this gown will be finished in the new “Ooh La La” parlor. 🙂
These were special custom boots I had made nearly twenty years ago for an event, they’re an amazing copy of a museum pair by Francois Pinet. Sadly, they were trashed in a horrific riding accident I was in and they’ve been sitting in a closet ever since. I would shudder when I touched them, the muscle memory was so strong. I firmly believe that things retain energy (clothing, houses, jewelry, books, etc. ) so it’s time to taken them to my shoe person to restore them and start over…because they’ll look great with the new day dress we’re making!
Two things I can’t resist…froufrou and a shoe sale! My new “Tissots” combine both of those. Don’t forget to check out the American Duchess shoe sale going on this month, before they’re all gone. This model is perfect for brides, church, anything that requires a low heel…shoe bows are clip-ons, Mom! 🙂
Six days to make this gown to go with my new Tavistock boots before we leave for London! The clock is ticking and my client work for the year is done…
My latest obsession to go with all my 1890s suits are the stunning boots from American Duchess: the “Camille”…these are so gorgeous, I plan on wearing them with *gasp* my “modern” outfits! Don’t miss out on these, I wanted the wine velvet, but the black velvet ones are just as beautiful…Lauren and Abby (the designers) are geniuses. Trust me…You Want These Boots!
This is Bonnie Prince Angus and I at our home in Tombstone for the Home Tours, I couldn’t resist showing off my boots to anyone who asked …check out the link, there’s still time to get them for Christmas. <3
